It’s summer time in the US! I know that at some places, the temperature reaches up to 110oF. I myself cannot stand this hot weather. The best way to cool down your whole body is to eat enough fruits that can detoxify your body well. These 7 fruits in this article including watermelon, lemon, avocado, pineapple, etc. can effectively do that job. These can also be considered as best fruits for diet.
You wouldn’t agree with me more that watermelon can be a perfect fit for any kind of summer party out there. One of the reasons is that it is very refreshing and watery. This water-rich fruit does not only provide the body with essential nutrients and at the same time releases toxins. What’s more, this juicy fruit has significant amounts of minerals and vitamins such as vitamin A, B6, C, and so on. It is also very low in calories and sodium, so this is my favorite fruit whenever I want to fill up my empty stomach.
Also, Victoria Jarzabkowski, a nutritionist at the Fitness Institute of Texas, The University of Texas at Austin, once said that this fruit consists of large amount of lycopene, one of the most powerful antioxidant that is linked with heart and bone health.
Lemon has already been the most well-known fruits to detoxify your body. This popular Asian fruits According to Shape magazine, drinking a glass of water mixed with lemon can definitely help cleanse the body. Lemon also supports the antibacterial system, dialysis and balances pH levels of the large intestine. The de-limonene antioxidant in this fruit also stimulates the liver enzyme toxin from the body. What’s more, Organic Facts pointed out that lemon could actually treat the problems of indigestion and constipation. It is also good for your skin, which is why it is one of the most important ingredients for any detox drink.
Pomelo or Grapefruit:
Pomelo fruit is one of the most popular Southeast Asian fruits. I have talked a lot about pomelo fruit benefits before, as how it is ideal for anyone with diabetes and also supports you with your weight loss process. According to Boldsky, as grapefruit and pomelo are rich in vitamins and minerals, it can well support our body in liver detoxifying process. After eating this fruit, you will feel refreshed, relaxed after a few hours consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice. Personally, I love pomelo a lot not only because I can easily find it in my country but also because of its sweet and mildly sour juicy taste. And it is always what I want to eat every single week during summer time.
It is among the best fruits for diet and for health improvement. Not only is it delicious and sweet, but pineapple is also a fruit that supports effectively the body detoxification, especially the kidney and bladder, thanks to the bromelain in this fruit, a powerful digestive enzyme. Bromelain helps digest protein, breaks down fat and reduces inflammation. According to Medical News Today, pineapple also contains large amount of manganese, which can help promote mood and enhance energy. Thanks to the pineapple juice rich nutrition, it can support your body immune system, digestion, eye health and also bone strength.
According to the HuffingtonPost, thanks to its abundant soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, avocado effectively cleanses the large intestine. Avocado is best-known for providing our body with the greatest amount of “healthy” fat among other fruits, also known as monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Even though avocado contains a lot of good fat, it does not actually make you “fat”. In fact, The Detox Specialists pointed out that the much higher amount of fiber in avocados can support the movement of toxins through the bowel. That’s why I would prefer having one avocado every week to assist with my detox plan.
We all know this phrasing ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ Apparently, there must be a reason why we have that common phrasing. According to Live Love Fruit, apples are rich in pectin, fiber that lowers cholesterol and maintains good digestive health while reducing the risk of developing colon cancer, preventing gallstones. Apples are also alkaline, which is the effect of restoring the pH balance in the body.
Last but not least, cucumber is another amazing detox fruit. You may have found multiple detox drinks that are made of cucumber. The reason why is that it contains significant amount of vitamin B and potassium, which help nourish the nerve system and prevent the risk of having headaches. Citrulline in cucumber also has the ability to filter the liver and kidneys, in particular remove the ammonia toxin out. Many people may not like having its skin for any kind of food or drinks, but it is actually one of other healthful parts of cucumber. According to Organic Facts, while its flesh contains a lot of vitamin A, vitamin C, and folic acid, the skin outside of cucumbers is indeed rich in fiber and a variety of minerals including magnesium, molybdenum, and potassium. So, I suggest you have them unpeeled for any of your meal plan.
